GhassanWhy a special issue about Egypt? Why today?

The truth is that the idea of this special issue is not new, and this is not the first issue about Egypt since we have issued more than one special in the past…



Every time I visit Egypt, I hear the Egyptians always repeating, “Egypt is the mother of the world.” Do we not see today what the ancient Egyptian civilization contains?

Thousands of years later, scientists still do not know how the Egyptians built pyramids with rocks weighing tons, especially since this specific type of rocks is not found in Egypt.

When they say that Egypt is the mother of the world, they are right, but unfortunately we live and we do not know who is the country that is dubbed the “mother of the world” and where we are today from the world. It is known that Egypt is still a leader in the Arab world and its population is of 100 million.

Having the largest Arab productions, we must not forget that there are hundreds of thousands, but perhaps millions of specialized Egyptian laborers running poultry industry projects in the Arab world. For all these reasons, we thought that we could only devote a special issue to Egypt, at least once a year. This issue is not the first as we mentioned, but it is a renewed one that is important to show the importance of the Republic of Egypt in the field of the Arab poultry industry.

In this issue, we highlight the poultry production sector in Egypt and publish interviews with people with long experience in the field of poultry production, in addition to covering the exhibition “Agrena” and the round table discussion that was held in the booth of our magazine on the first day of the exhibition.

Our goal is to feature the most important Arab counties producing poultry with a special issue at least once per year.

And here I remember the saying “Wind blows counter to what ships desire” but we need to remember that winds do not stop the ships from sailing although it might slow them down but ships always get to the shore eventually.

See? Isn’t it the time for all of us to get to the shore without any exception?

Incubating duck and goose eggs

There are relatively few hatcheries that specialise in waterfowl. Their programs and procedures are largely based on traditions and many years of practical local experience.
Usually, people try to mimic Mother Nature. Waterfowl nest close to water, and a brooding female returns to the nest from the water wet and chilled. It would seem that these conditions help hatchability, as it is rare to find an unhatched egg in the nests of wild ducks or geese.

VIV worldwide and the Covid-19 challenge: the exhibitions perspective

The animal husbandry industry has been hardly hit by the pandemic, like the whole world has.

Parts of the value chain had to deal with a slowdown in production, others had to re-structure within days or weeks the whole operation line, and others had to stop completely. VIV worldwide exhibitions, accelerators of the Feed to Food value chainand trading since decades, have become one of the missing linksinthe animal protein production over the past 3 months.Together with the foodservice industry, and other aspects of the supply world, exhibitions could not perform at all during the lockdown.From the organizers’ point of view, here is how covid-19 challenges the show industry.

New Tool Improves Beekeepers' Overwintering Odds and Bottom Line

A new tool from the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) can predict the odds that honey bee colonies overwintered in cold storage will be large enough to rent for almond pollination in February. Identifying which colonies will not be worth spending dollars to overwinter can improve beekeepers' bottom line.

Beekeepers have been losing an average of 30 percent of overwintered colonies for nearly 15 years.
